The Write Night

25th February,
18th March,
22nd April,
27th May

from 7.30pm

Love to write? Come along and share at Worthing's best writers' night, celebrating poetry, rapping, songs and stories. Fraser's Bar at the Connaught Theatre. Admission £2.50 on the door.

Drop me an email ( ) to book your slot! A number of poets and playwrights have already been in touch. Past content has included several short plays, stories and acoustic music.

The idea is to create a warm and friendly atmosphere where people can share new material and afford to fail. Through Melody’s work for the local newspaper it’s clear that there are a lot of brilliant writers out there but not enough places to showcase this. The purpose of setting up The Write Night is to give local writers the opportunity to express themselves, to find new voices and to celebrate emerging talent.
